Harnessing Intimate Power

Much of our success in intimate relationships requires us to understand our entire fabric: 


Our Drives, Lessons, Learned Patterns and Higher Selves.  We have to learn to integrate

these aspects and choose to live within the intimate experience of these strong intentions.

Intimacy asks us to do the difficult things.

To set aside our more anxious desires for 'knowing’ and embrace the curiosity of ‘being’ with a partner. 


This is an especially vulnerable journey of

wise mind and kind learning.  We must disarm defensive impulses, be aware of our prior patterns, and lean into our uncertain


This process 'adapts us to deeper awareness’,

evolves our compassionate trust, and matures

us into the 'witness' of intimate relationships.

Harnessing Intimate Power Workshops & Retreats

In many years of supporting the couple’s journey, we found three important practices of healthy sustainable intimacy.


Cadence, Comaraderie & Connection


Cadence – Is the movement into/aligning with the mutual                            rhythm of another.  Finding harmony with your                          partner.

                                        -Even as change arises,

                                             use empathy in advance.

Comaraderie  – A spirited trustworthy friendship.                                                A predictable, dependable faith-built                                           alliance.

                                               -Become love’s trusted friend,

                                              grow yourself into compassion.


Connection - Attaching to the ‘presentness’ of one another.                              Finding genuine vulnerable contact with our                              partner.

                                                 -As we feel an intimate connection   

                                                 we must hold each other’s shadows.
